    Based on the great pics that everyone is getting on their Icon, I guess I am alone with having an issue with the camera not focusing. Hard reset here I come. Hope that fixes it.

    Try a soft reset first.

    To be fair, the one of my daughter jumping off the rock was a frame captured using the "capture the moment" capability built into the video camera. Getting that shot can be challenging even with a professional DSLR.

    I had already tried the soft reset a few times to no avail. I went ahead and did a hard reset yesterday. Luckily, there is nothing for me to lose other than time. I have only had the time to take a couple pics since, so can't say for sure if it worked yet. A little frustrating when all my pics were coming out blurry and I try my son's Icon and everything was crisp and clear as it should be.

    Here are some more from the Pacific Aviation Museum on Ford Island. It handled low light situations pretty good. I couldn't of gotten many of these shots when I was on the old firmware. It does have a problem with bright backlit scenes, mainly because the flash is not as strong as the 928's. Otherwise not to shabby. Compared to my wife's GS5, it still kicks ****.

    Pics look great Gernettl. I have to send my phone in for warranty repair. The camera still won't properly focus. Tried soft reset, hard reset and Microsoft CSR had me try Lumia Software Recovery Tool. Looks like I caught a hardware failure with my camera.

    Thanks! I'm sorry to hear your phone was defective. I hope you get your replacement quickly. I REALLY wish they made a waterproof housing for the Icon. I have the DryCase, and it works pretty good. The downside is that it is awkward to use the camera button and when actually in the water, the water causes phantom touches and such. Otherwise, I would use it for snorkeling instead of my WG-4, which is waterproof down to 45ft.

    Hi all, just wondering how to use night mode in Lumia camera 5? On Lumia camera classic was 3 modes (auto, night and spot). I've looked everywhere, but couldn't find. Thanks.

    I didn't know that Lumia Camera had a night mode, let alone the other two modes. Are you sure you were using Lumia Camera and not the stock camera app?

    Lumia camera 5 (default camera in Denim now) doesn't have them or I can't find them (that's was a question after all), but Lumia camera classic (default camera in Black, which can be still downloaded from the store) have them and I use those very frequently, especially night mode.

    Ok. Here is a link to the user voice. It's kind of like a suggestion box. Microsoft actually does read them.

    For us camera n00b, how do I access RAW images?
    For on phone processing I use Rawer it does a pretty decent job. You can adjust for exposure, contrast, hue, saturation, crop, sharpness, and a few other things.

    Rawer | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Otherwise, you have to download the DNG files onto a desktop or laptop and edit them in Lightroom or other like application. There are several out there and a few of them are free. Just Google free RAW image converter.

    I personally use Lightroom because I have a Canon DSLR and shoot in RAW format almost exclusiv

    Here are a couple the first one is the JPG.

    wp_20150302_06_30_04_raw.jpg

    The second was from the DNG RAW version processed on phone using Rawer.

    wp_20150302_06_29_58_raw__highres_rawer.jpg

    Not too shabby.

    Edit: Of course the orientation bug HAD to rear its ugly head. I think the EXIF bug shows up when writing the JPG version. It doesn't present itself in the DNG RAW file.

    After the official 8.1 update, the photos I am taking are turning out insanely well and very clear! I'll post them up once I get them uploaded.
